Nothing like bringing a knife to a gunfight.

  • Bronco will be a lot more affordable
  • Bronco you can remove the top and doors
  • Bronco will be available in manual
  • Ford doesn't mind modding as much
  • Parts will be cheaper
  • Won't be driven by yuppies, preppies and badge snobs
  • Actually will be seen on the trails
Just my two cents

True 99.9% of the time but last Summer I almost hit a "yuppy" driving a brand new Range Over on my way to my favorite shooting spot on the fire roads above my town.

I was doing about 15 mph in my F-250 coming around a blind corner and hat to stomp on the brakes because this lady was doing about 40 and was on my side I'm assuming because she didn't want to drive too close to the cliff on her side.

Too many jokes right there

Also, Slipknot was right

The Defender 110 base starts at $49,990 MSRP and quickly goes north of $92K. I whine a lot about trim and option structure, but these Brits are the Masters of the Universe. I guess it'll do as a good stand in until your Cullinan arrives.

It clearly needs a manual, but of course, it'll never get one

Watch that video. Watch as the corners float way in the air as it goes over bumps. The suspension barely travels and has almost zero articulation. This is why so many people are screaming about solid Axels on the bronco.

Here's the Jimny, SFA off roading and lifting it's wheels too. I'm not going to pretend to know a lot about off roading so can someone explain why the Jimny also has issues? Also not trying to be a dick, just curious as I have seen several Wrangler/Jimny comparisons where it acts like this and I'm genuinely curious.
